Baguettes, Long Baguettes and Half-Baguettes

Image of a long French Baguette

The classic long, thin loaf of French bread distinguishable by its length and crisp crust. Considered one of the symbols of French culture, baguettes, either relatively short single-serving size or cut from a longer loaf, are very often used for sandwiches, usually of the submarine sandwich type.

Baguettes are available in lengths of 55cm and 70cm.

The Half-Baguette is 25 cm long.
